Picture this: a cosy cottage in the countryside, a pretty garden with its own vegetable patch, and a charming country kitchen to prepare meals from your freshly picked veggies. It’s a dream-like scenario that many of us will have entertained at some point but with our holiday cottages with vegetable patches, it can become a reality – if only for a week or two! We’ve selected a few of our lovely rural cottages which boast their own veggie gardens to whet your appetite.
School House, Pembrokeshire
This beautiful stone cottage in the peaceful Welsh village of Spittal is the epitome of a relaxing countryside getaway; there’s a friendly pub opposite to the cottage, delightful walks from the doorstep and a village green next door. School House prides itself on being eco-friendly with green technology to heat the property and solar panels for electricity. Guests can also enjoy picking herbs, fruit and vegetables from the cottage’s plentiful veggie plot when in season.
Stables Cottage, Devon
Stables Cottage is a cosy barn conversion on a working arable farm and is the ideal Devon bolthole for a couple or small family. This four star cottage is pet-friendly and offers a warming woodburning stove in the living area, beautiful countryside views and a large, enclosed garden for your dogs to run around in. The friendly farm owners are also happy to let guests collect freshly-laid eggs and home-grown vegetables for their own use from the farm gardens.
